Patriotism and Crochet - Week 2

As I promised in the previous post, here is the discount that will only be available until Wednesday July 6th at 11:59 pm MST. All booties and Adult slippers 50% off! Wow that is a big discount! If you would like to take advantage of this offer e-mail me your order and within 24 hours I will send you a paypal invoice with the amount owed. Here is this weeks crochet fun fact!

In researching a patriotic post for this week I discovered that crochet was not as popular in the original colonies as it was in France or England. Knitting seemed to be more popular. Wives of the soldiers fighting for independence would knit socks to support their men in the war.

I feel that handmade lends more support than anything else when you are not able to be close to your loved ones.

Thank you to all the past, present and future soldiers fighting for our continual freedom. May God bless you and your families for this great sacrifice.
